“Right on the water”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Edgewater very much. The building was literally on the water. It was clean and had everything that we needed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Two small caveats: We were underway on the heritage bike trail and our only means of transportation were our bicycles. When we arrived we had hoped to go out to eat near the premises but learned that the closest possibility to get supper was a general store a couple of miles down the road. This is a good thing to know beforehand if you have limited mobility. With a car it would have been no problem. Other issue: we were looking forward to an evening of watching the sea and ship lights after sunset, however, as soon as it got dark out, a huge spotlight went on right next to our suite so we had no possibility of enjoying the seascape since we were blinded by the overdone lights. It also totally illuminated our suite making it very difficult to sleep. A suggestion would be to have small, individual lights next to each balcony door which would only illuminate that part of the porch used by the suite resident and could be turned off if desired. Other than that, Edgewater was a lovely little lodge. One very positive thing: the lodge has resisted the trend to nail windows shut and force lodgers use loud air-conditioners. We had the door open with screen closed and it was wonderful, especially being over the water.

Room Tip: Our room was right over the water which I would recommend.

Hello, We are really glad you enjoyed your stay here. We are about a 5-10 minute drive from restaurants, but that is part of the charm of Edgewater and why we are such a relaxing spot to get away to. Also, Thank you for your suggestion about the lights and we are looking into changing the light by the water. Thank you for taking the time to comment, and we hope to have you stay with us again very soon!

We loved our stay at Edgewater Lodge.Cynthia could not have been more kindly, friendly and helpfull.
Edgewater Lodge is a place with all the facilities you want.The room was clean and well furnished. It is well situated if you want to visit the Keys.
We enjoyed our stay and we wish we could have spent more time.
It is a very romantic place to share with the loved one.
We recommand this place as it is the best place to be to enjoy a great moment.
You can also enjoy the deck to chat over a glass of wine, to see beautifull sunsets.
We will come back.

We loved our stay at Edgewater Lodge. It was very, very clean and the deck off our room was right on the water. It is in a much quieter part of the Keys, but is close of enough to get to Key West in about an hour. They gave us great recommendations on places to eat close by that were great choices. Would definitely recommend to stay here!

The only thing I would change would be to put a couple more lights in the room. I had trouble reading before bed because the little lamp on the night stand wasn't bright enough. It wasn't a big deal at all...just a recommendation (maybe a higher watt bulb in the lamp). You will love this place! The prettiest sunsets we saw our whole trip were on the deck outside our room.

A friend and I stayed for fours days over Presidents' Day. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very clean and the kitchens help you save money by allowing you to eat in. I have stayed at many places in the keys (we live near Naples, Fl) and this is definitely one of the better values. A local place for locals.

Room Tip: Get an efficiency. Room 15 is awesome.

This place has everything. It's a great location, beautiful in its own right, and nicely situated in the middle of the Keys. This is a perfect place to stay if you want to explore the other islands like Key Largo and Key West. It's quieter than the hotspots but still right on the main drag and very easy to hop on and go anywhere. The staff are fantastic, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. We got some great tips on restaurants, beaches, and kayaking areas. The rooms were lovely, light and pretty. The extra stuff -pool, kayaks, bicycles- is awesome and very well-maintained. We loved our stay here, and will definitely be coming back!

The Edgewater is clean and well-maintained with great customer service. It is very user friendly, especially with the chicki huts and tables and chairs facing the Gulf. The prices are reasonable too, which seems to be changing in many of the motels/hotels in the Keys. The only problem might be their boat ramp if you have a slightly larger boat (over 16') as it looks like the concrete stops quite short into the water and it's sandy bottom following the end of the concrete. It might be best to put your boat in at a public ramp and then use their beautiful new docks during your stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms face the Gulf so you can't go wrong.

What a great place. Cynthia was a wonderful hostess. She let us check in early and gave us great advice about the surrounding area. We loved the free kayaks, bikes, and the gas bbq to cook our dinner. You can jump into the water right off the deck attached to our room! We'll be back.
